Tile wall corner bead - metal edging

Hi all,
In my bathroom remodel, where the plumbing wall turns the corner, there is a corner bead. The wall had tiles all the way to the corner. I have demolished the plumbing wall to the studs. The old wall and the demolished wall are shown in the attached image.

I will be tiling again and would like to use a metal edge, like the Quadec along this corner.

For installing the metal tile edging, do I have to do anything different than the following:
1) Install board (waterproof)
2) Secure corner bead
3) Apply thinset
4) Install edging and tiles

Also, do I need to completely scrape out the old thinset from the corner bead?

Thanks
Tbone

Remove the corner bead, install the backer board and then you will skim the void with a setting type compound so it does not crack out. Use the metal edge to pull a smooth line after the metal has been installed. Use a straight edge to make sure the metal is set to the appropriate depth for your final skim and the cement board does not interfere with the skim.

I figured I would be advised to remove the corner bead. I am glad to get rid of it.
If I understand the rest of the process correctly, the final product will look like the attached image, looking from the top. Is this correct? The skim layer will touch the backer board, though.

Yes, you most likely will have to tape the seam between the drywall and backer. The transition from skim to metal will be caulked and then painted to blend. Use clear paintable kitchen and bath adhesie caulk.
